My first visit, but maybe an off night. Though food was very good. An outstanding rib eye steak, which I’m glad my date ordered. Worth the price. My Scottish trout, also very good.
But service was off. Our waiter preoccupied with a large party, and rarely around. Silverware was dirty. And, we had to laugh that three different wait staff said they would light the candle at our dark table.
Good food is not a scarcity along the OC coast., But give me great service and an experience and I’ll will be back soon.
Amazing time, always a fun Orange County spot!
From the moment we were seated, we were catered to like the only people in the restaurant. Saul and Vincent were amazing. Great time, million dollar view and excellent food.
Have enjoyed MANY meals at Splashes and they have never disappointed!!! The staff is wonderful and has found the perfect balance between being attentive and providing privacy to their guests. The food is exceptional (Paella that I had this last visit was WONDERFUL and the brussel sprouts are always YUMMY). The handcrafted cocktails are always delicious and the bar staff offers wonderful options to fit your particular taste. The wine list is extensive and filled with high end and mid price wines that are sure to satisfy any palate. And last but definitely NOT least, the view is second to none!!! If you have not tried this amazing place, do yourself a favor and do so!!! NOW!!! :)
Little pricey for lunch but food and service was outstanding.
Dining with high school classmates from class of ‘64
Please, the elevator was slow and one of them didn’t work. We walked down five flights of stairs with an elderly parent The food and service was excellent
Came here with my wife for Sunday brunch. Excellent service, excellent food and awesome view/location. Don't come here for a quiet little lunch/dinner as the place is quite busy with families, functions, etc when we were there. It's a hotel restaurant but on the water and beautiful. Good menu which I believe changes so check it on line before going.
A few weeks in advance, I requested a table with a nice view to celebrate a special occasion with friends from out of town. They stuck us at a table outside, crammed between the disgusting rest rooms and the indoor dining room next to all the people traffic from the beach and bar. Waiter didn’t come until 15min after we were seated. We finally ordered and waited for our appetizers to arrive. Had to ask one of the servers for bread as our waiter clearly forgot. Waiter was a friendly guy, but for a restaurant that charges $50 for a piece of short rib with inattentive, subpar service, Splashes is NOT worth it. I have no issues with restaurants automatically adding in 20% gratuity for parties of 6 or more, but truly hate paying it when the service, food and the whole experience was so incredibly disappointing. We will certainly not be returning to this establishment.
Good food and service, but you pay for it in the end with the bill!
We were seated in a traffic heavy area because the table I requested (on the lower patio) was not going to be available for awhile.; the servers had to move chairs from our table more than once in order to serve food to our table and the ones near us. We made our reservation to coincide with the sunset and were not disappointed; it was fabulous. The scallops were out of this world¡ the risotto was so so; the lemon bar was delicious. All in all, I would come back.
Nothing special. We are from NH and not spoiled with restaurants since we live in a small town Hanover by Dartmouth college. I was expecting dinner to be exceptional. Filet mignon was ok. My kids got hamburgers what was ok too but nothing that we couldn’t get in NH. I got advise from local people not to dine at the resorts but rather pick a place in town. Nick’s , mastro’s and harbor grill is places that local people think is the best. Service wasn’t that great either at splashes. Server recommended try water melon margarita but he didn’t ask if I like pepper and I mentioned with on a rocks with salt. Had to wait for taxi to get back to monarch beach resort where we stayed for close to one hour. I wouldn’t recommend this place.
Still a killer location. Rather odd food selection. The service is OK, but not great, the staff seem either poorly trained staff or spread too thin.
Pedro was awesome! Food delicious. View wonderful.
Amazing food great service!
We will definitely be back
Excellent service , great food and gorgeous view.
Rigo is a very professional and gracious waiter.
My experience was PHENOMENAL! Food was delicious & service was outstanding.
My husband and I wanted a special dinner with sunset views to celebrate a special occasion and we were totally impressed with Splash. Located above the beach on the first floor of the Surf and Sand Resort, inside seating has full-length windows that open to the waves or outside seating has heat lamps. The service is exceptional. We were at first seated in Daniella’s section. She was incredibly sweet and attentive and we asked to move to the window so that we could see the sunset, she made it happen in Phillip’s section. Thank you Daniella. The watermelon margarita is refreshing and interesting. We shared their special appetizer of Hamachi and avocado in coconut water and for entrees enjoyed the duck and sea trout. The sound of waves crashing right below the restaurant adds to the ambiance and the sunset view was gorgeous. There is a fireplace in the elegantly designed dining room. We were brought a complimentary crème brulee to celebrate. Great views, service, food, ambiance, and drinks. Loved it. What more could you want!
As close to the surf as one would ever want or need to be. Great food, great cocktails. Once we saw a whale from our table; another time a movie producer and his entourage, best in good weather but there is a cozy fire for a chilly night
The view is really spectacular, and worth the reservation. However, we were disappointed as we made a reservation in advance because of the view, yet a duo who did not pressured the hostess into providing them with a great outdoor table. We came to this location for the view and did our due diligence to make a reservation only for us to lose our table. I believe they should honor those with reservations first. The food was very delicious, especially the oysters. Unfortunately, we started off the meal on a rough step which trickled down on our experience.
Brunch was good and ambience outstanding. Beautiful view of surf and sand...
A little over priced for what you get.
I guess you have to pay for the view in the food cost. Appetizers are not worth it at all.
Birthday celebration.. perfect venue
Awesome chef's table meal
Very surprised at how good this place is.
Everybody was very polite. The waiter checked up on us frequently and the food was delicious. The view was amazing and they were able to hold reservations for a window seat which I appreciated very much! Over all great experience and a perfect place to take a date!
This used to be my one restaurant were I never thought we could go wrong, but I was very disappointed in the quality of the food. The service was superb, but the menu choices and quality was not what I expected.
Our family came for Easter lunch menu. It was fantastic! Amazing food, drinks, staff.
The whole Resort team could not have been nicer. Our meal was excellent, and you can't beat the view!
Food and experience was outstanding!
Excellent service! Great food, and perfect location.
Wonderful experience! The entire staff was welcoming, friendly, accommodating, and happy. The food was amazing! We will definitely be coming back.
Had a good experience at Splashes this week for dinner. Got a table with a beautiful view. The service was good but it seemed they were understaffed. The food was incredible. The mussel appetizer was delicious, I had the gnocchi which was amazing and the Mr. had the short ribs which were spectacular. We will definitely come back again!
Birthday for my girlfriend. It was great.
